Murdoch Says O'reilly Doesn't Represent His Views

In an interview with Time magazine appearing on its website, Rupert Murdoch has acknowledged that Fox News Channel may well represent a major reason why his plans to acquire the Wall Street Journal have incensed critics. But when asked whether Fox News is an expression of his own political views, he replied: "Yes! No! Yes and no. The commentators are not. Bill O'Reilly certainly not. Geraldo Rivera certainly not. But Brit Hume and his team on the nightly news? Yes. They play it absolutely straight!" On the other hand, he said, CNN is pretty consistently on the left, if you look at their choice of stories, what they play up. It's not what they say. It's what they highlight. ... And if you look at our general news, do we put on things which favor the right rather than the left? I don't know."
